Subject [jira] (MNG-3092) Version ranges with non-snapshot bounds can contain snapshot versions
Date Tue, 02 Apr 2013 13:47:53 GMT


Jesse Glick commented on MNG-3092:

An example using Maven 3.0.5:
shows the workaround for what I take to be this issue. In versions of Jenkins using stapler-adjunct-codemirror
1.1 prior to this change?and plugins depending on those versions of Jenkins?at least one build
per day spends a chunk of time (10?20s?) looking for nonexistent SNAPSHOT versions of a transitive

(Where it gets these version numbers from, I have no idea?the Artifactory mirror makes no
mention of such versions in {{maven-metadata.xml}}, and the occurrences in my local repo are
all freshly created {{}} and {{stapler-1.176-SNAPSHOT.pom.lastUpdated}}
files which list only ?errors? and soon get recreated if I delete them.)

Maven 2.2.1 also downloads 1.208-SNAPSHOT, which _does_ exist, but none of these intermediate

I have also encountered builds that _failed_ trying to find one of these nonexistent snapshots,
though I cannot now reproduce this problem.

unless it is included as an explicit boundary."

> The following is equates to true:
> VersionRange.createFromVersionSpec( "[1.0,1.1]" ).containsVersion( new DefaultArtifactVersion(
"1.1-SNAPSHOT" ) )
> The attached patch only allows snapshot versions to be contained in a range if they are
equal to one of the boundaries.  Note that this is a strict equality, so [1.0,1.2-SNAPSHOT]
will not contain 1.1-SNAPSHOT.
